The process of getting into rehab

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: Your GP in Ballyclare is a good place to start. They can discuss your drug abuse problems with you and help get you the right intensive drug rehab program in Newtownabbey.

Private rehab Process
Skip The Waiting List. Self-funding: you can self refer. This means literally call or turn up at your drug and alcohol rehabilitation of choice with a credit card. See admissions.

Health insurance: choose your rehab and then ask GP to write a referral letter for you to take away. Alternatively, ask the doctor of advice on which hospital or clinic he recommends. More.

Arriving at the treatment centre

This will differ at different facilities but it is much the same everywhere

  1. You will be assessed so that your treatment needs and medical requirements are understood and a treatment plan is created
  2. You may need to detox
  3. You may be assigned a consultant psychiatrist near Ballyclare. They are in overall charge of your care and medication plan. They may make suggestions based on your diagnosis for additional medication or individual therapy on top of group work

Does rehab work in Newtownabbey?

Yes it does. There is a strong evidence base to support the treatment methods used at Castle Craig, as well as in support of residential rehabilitation treatment for drug abuse/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "Castle Craig's  treatment is independently and scientifically proven to work. More."

What's it like? Click here for more information.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Local community-based or local outpatient services based in Newtownabbey does not offer this opportunity or level or isolation. It is proven that taking a person out of their home and away from 'using friends' or 'dealers' offers a better chance of staying sober long term.

  2. Tailored Treatment: Private clinics in Newtownabbey tend to use a bespoke treatment model rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Many clients have co-occurring issues like bereavement issues or bipolar disorder. Addiction is often seen as a response to inner turmoil.

"I came because it operated with a small group size of people just like me. I was shy and withdraw,, now I feel so much stronger. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." Alivia June 2017 Newtownabbey

Why rehab might not work:

  • Focus solely on physical coping strategies
  • patients continue to surround yourself with others who still use
  • See addiction myths

Help and Advice  the most effective Short-term residential rehab in Northern Ireland

How long does rehab take?

The duration of your drug and alcohol rehabilitation stay will depend on the severity of your dependency, your own commitment, family support and willingness to live a life free from dependency, and the amount of time and money you have available to spend. If you have insurance then it will generally be 28-days.

Generally, the longer the rehab programme the less likely you are to relapse. NHS rehab normally accommodates longer inpatient treatments sometimes up to a year. More.

Average UK inpatient times

Ballyclare

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and drug abuse/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Newtownabbey will follow a similar pattern.

A significant focus during treatment is on achieving clarity about the issues, people and surroundings in your life that have fuelled the desire to abuse drugs or alcohol/problems with gambling, internet and shopping.

Daytime

Sleeping in is not part of the programme. You get up early, get dressed, attend breakfast. Some clinics have morning meditation. Some clinics ask patients to clear away breakfast things on a rota.

  1. Breakfast is followed by group (often 90 minutes)
  2. (Break)
  3. Another Group (60 minutes)
  4. (Lunch)
  5. One to one session or Group ;(60 minutes)
  6. Group, yoga or Pilates session or lecture ;(60 minutes)
  7. Possible meeting with your consultant, social worker, help team
  8. There is often written step or life story work to do

Evening time: Normally patients are bused to a meeting of AA, NA, or relevant 12 step programme.

Diet: Several rehabs have adopted nutritional diets to combat mental health issues. There may be an absence of sugar and caffeine. Smoking is still allowed outside as it is said that alcoholics would not attend otherwise.

Devices: In some clinics phones or laptops use is forbidden or discouraged. Bear in mind that a person with internet or a gaming addiction may find other patient using their devices triggering.

Visitor/family contact: It was common for patients to be advised to limit any or all contact with friends or family during the first week of treatment. Again this differs by provider. NHS rehabs are often further from your home in Ballyclare as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my drug and alcohol rehabilitation? Yes, there are not secure facilities.

Can I come back? Not always, the NHS is sometimes stricter, if you drink or use you may be barred from returning either, at all, or within 48 hours.

Ideal location for treatment

Finding the best rehab programme for drug abuse difficulties is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?

Every addiction client is different. However, most consultants often recommend that removing alcoholics/addicts away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably sensible.

It is better that the location is quiet and has an atmosphere that is both calm, peaceful and still 100% recovery-focused. However, that does not mean that city rehabs do not have appeal.

The difficulty with towns and city location is that offer easy access to alcohol and drugs, whereas locations without shops and fewer people make accessing substances that little bit harder. Perhaps this could be the difference between a moment's weakness leading to relapse or sobriety.
